Product Description

Cosmos ‘Apricot Lemonade’
Cosmos bipinnatus

There is absolutely no cosmos like this beauty. The unique color reminds us of ‘Distant Drums’ roses - watercolored petals start out a soft apricot with a dusty lavender reverse and fade to a buttery yellow. Variations amongst the blooms include some flowers with a mauve ring at the throat. A bit of separation between the petals conjures a pinwheel with snipped dovetail edges. A must grow for event work.

Details:
Plant type: annual
Height: 20-30”
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 75-90 days
Plant spacing: 12”
Pinch: when 12” tall
Approx seeds per packet: 50

How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Cosmos can also be direct seeded once weather has warmed.

Harvesting/Vase Life:
Individual blooms don’t last long in the vase, about 4-6 days, but each stem is loaded with multiple blossoms that open over a period of a week. Harvest when buds are cracking, but haven’t fully opened in order to prevent insects from pollinating, which will help stretch the vase life by a few extra days. Flower preservative is recommended.
